The Metropolitan Transit Authority's latest foray into branded MetroCards follows similar pop culture-themed collaborations, like last year's Twin Peaks- and Supreme-themed versions of the typically dull yellow cards riders swipe at turnstiles. The Bowie-themed run was sponsored by Spotify to celebrate the boundary-pushing rocker and longtime New Yorker, who died a little over two years ago. The release also coincides with a new and critically lauded David Bowie exhibit currently running at the Brooklyn Museum.
According to the MTA, they've printed 250,000 Bowie cards in total, and they can be purchased at the Broadway-Lafayette and Bleecker St stations. There are five versions featuring different iconic images though they'll set you back $6.50 a pop, because they have a two ride minimum on them.
